A Bit of British Television... and Dr. Horrible... Again

Jeeves & Wooster: The Complete SeriesOn Friday evening, we went to Annette's apartment to hang out with her. We ordered pizza and decided to check out some British humor. We watched an episode of Jeeves & Wooster - it's a TV show about a rich young man (Wooster) and his 'valet' (Jeeves). Wooster is played by Hugh Laurie (from House!) and Jeeves is Stephen Frye. Unfortunately, the episode we watched was just not funny. We had to stretch to imagine exactly what anyone would find funny about this. Has anyone else seen this show - are we missing something?

A Bit of Fry and Laurie - The Complete Collection... Every Bit!After that, we watched an episode of 'A Bit of Frye and Laurie,' which is kind of like a Saturday Night Live-type show staring only Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie. It was also very British-humor-y, but I liked it pretty well.

The IT Crowd: The Complete Second SeasonFinally, we watched a few episodes of IT Crowd. This is the British sitcom about a few people who work in the IT department of a company. All of the episodes we watched were really funny. Although, actually, I think  one of the funniest thing is the menus on the DVD. The intro is a spoof of the "All Your Base Are Belong to Us" video game intro, and then the menu screen looks exactly like the Mortal Combat video game menu screen. Awesome.

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along BlogOh, and we watched Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog... again. :)
